      Quincy shake-and-baker makes plea in court

      Rodney Rankin

      A Quincy man arrested after police say they found methamphetamine in his home is now headed to prison.

      Rodney Rankin pleaded guilty to methamphetamine manufacturing in court Tuesday.

      He's sentenced to seven years in state prison.

      Rankin was one of two people arrested last August after police raided his home.

      Authorities say in the home they found various items used in the shake-and-bake methamphetamine making process.

      Rankin faced three other charges but they were dismissed.

      His counterpart, Carol Franklin was previously sentenced to three months in the Adams County jail for methamphetamine related charges.
